With a thickness of 8.3 mm (0.33 in), it is slightly thinner than the Galaxy Note II, and is also slightly lighter. The version sold in and North America of the Galaxy Note 3 (N9005) uses a 2.3 GHz quad-core chip, while the -only model (N9000/N9006) sold outside aforementioned regions uses an octa-core, consisting of four 1.9 GHz cores and four 1.3 GHz cores. Testing has shown similar performance for both models.. The device also includes 3 GB of RAM, a 5.7-inch display, a 13-megapixel rear-facing camera capable of filming videos in 1080p at 60 and at 30 fps (capped at 5 minutes), 16, 32 or 64 GB of internal storage, and a 3200 mAh battery. Galaxy Note 3 Duos (N9002) is based on LTE variant but adds additional second SIM card slot.
As with other Galaxy Note series devices, the Galaxy Note 3 ships with an S Pen, which has been updated to use a more symmetrical shape. The Galaxy Note 3 is also the first smartphone to include support for, which enables faster data transfers and charging when connected to a compatible port.
The Galaxy Note 3 was first made available in black, white, and pink. In December 2013, Samsung introduced three new color schemes for select markets; black with gold-colored trim, white with rose gold-colored trim, and red with silver-colored trim. Software [ ] The Galaxy Note 3 comes with and Samsung's proprietary NatureUX 2.5 user interface and software. Additional pen-oriented features have been added to the Note 3's software; removing the stylus from its compartment (or pressing its button whilst hovering over the display) activates an 'Air Command' which provides shortcuts to pen-oriented features such as Action Memos (on-screen that use to detect their contents and provide relevant actions, such as looking up addresses on and dialing phone numbers), Screen Write (an annotation tool), Pen Window (which allows users to draw pop-up windows to run certain apps inside), the search tool S Finder, and Scrapbook.
The multi-window functionality has also been updated with expanded app support, the ability to run multiple instances of a single app, and the ability to content between apps. The device also ships with a app known as My Magazine, accessible by swiping up from the bottom of the screen, and an updated version of S Note. On January 13, 2014, an update to was first made available through in for LTE models. The update adds user interface tweaks such as a camera shortcut on the corner of the lock screen, options for setting default launcher and text messaging applications, support for printing, and a new location settings menu for tracking and controlling the use of location tracking by apps.
4.4 also makes significant changes to the handling of secondary storage on the device for security reasons; applications' access to the SD card is now restricted to designated, app-specific directories only, while full access to internal primary storage is still allowed. Although this behavior has existed by default since Android 3.0 'Honeycomb', OEMs such as Samsung previously modified their distributions of Android to retain the previous behavior, allowing applications to have unlimited access to SD card contents. Samsung began rolling out an update to in January 2015. Release [ ] Samsung first teased the unveiling of the Galaxy Note 3 with its announcement of a Samsung Unpacked event on September 4, 2013 at, which contained the tagline 'Note the date.' The international Galaxy Note 3 was released on September 25, 2013 in over 140 countries, while its U.S. And Japanese releases were released in October 2013.
All Galaxy Note 3s will also include a free one-year subscription to Premium. The American and European models of the Galaxy Note 3 implement a system in certain regions; requiring that the used on a European and North American model be from a carrier in that region. While a Samsung spokesperson claimed that the lock would be removed once a valid SIM card is used, it was reported by users that this was not the case. Although an user developed a tool to clear the carrier that the system uses, it requires that the phone be. A spokesperson claimed that the system was primarily intended to prevent reselling, although some critics suspected that carriers may have asked Samsung to implement the feature in order to force users to by preventing them from using a local SIM card. Samsung also stated that it implemented a similar policy on Galaxy S III, Note II, S4, and S4 Mini models manufactured after July 2013. The models of the Note 3 are: SM-N900 (GSM), N9000 (3G), SM-N9005 (4G/LTE), N9002 (LTE dual-SIM), SM-N9006 (China/WCDMA), SM-N900A(USA AT&T), SM-N900T(USA T-mobile), SM-N900P(USA Sprint), SM-N900V(USA Verizon), SM-N900R4(USA US cellular), SM-N900W8 (Canada and some of the operators of Latin America) Reception [ ] complimented the incremental improvements to the Galaxy Note 3's hardware and software, considering it to be the company's 'best attempt yet at making touch input optional on a mobile device.'
Its overall design was considered to be 'cohesive and well thought-out' despite Samsung's continuing use of plastic, and subtle changes such as a symmetrically-shaped stylus were also noted. However, the My Magazine app was panned for being a 'tacked on' gimmick. Considered the Galaxy Note 3 to be an evolution in comparison to its predecessor (including its faster hardware and bigger screen), but criticized the device's design for not looking as 'slick and premium' in real life as it did during the promotional video.

The Good The Samsung Galaxy Note 5 has an eye-catching design and high-end hardware, and it takes great outdoor photos. Using the stylus has never felt better and battery life is terrific.
The Bad With a nonremovable battery and no external storage option, the Note 5 strips away some of last year's features. It's pricey compared with large-screen competitors like Motorola's Moto X Pure. The Bottom Line Samsung's Galaxy Note 5 is excellent overall, and the only phone to buy if you want to write by hand. However, you'll pay a huge premium for a modest upgrade from last year's model, and less pricey competitors will satisfy many. Fall '16 update In August, Samsung released the Galaxy Note 7, its follow-up to the Galaxy Note 5, to favorable reviews. With its head-turning design, precise stylus and brilliant screen, it shored up the Note 5's few weaknesses, and was praised as Samsung's ultimate phone. Until the devices started overheating and, in some cases, catching fire.
After a botched recall and some very negative publicity, in September Samsung. The company earlier had asked carriers around the world to. The has gone further, saying, 'Consumers should power down and stop using all 7s.' Our advice: Don't buy a Galaxy Note 7, even if you can still find one. And if you already own one, you should immediately turn it off and exchange it for a phone that isn't a Note 7. All US cellular carriers and Best Buy (among others) for phones of equal value on the same network. Similar schemes apply in the UK and Australia.
The Galaxy Note 5, which Samsung still sells, however, remains a solid, reliable and nonexplosive phone. Though it doesn't have all of this year's hardware or software enhancements, it features a great camera, a terrific stylus and extensive battery life. And it is safe to own and use. In fact, there is no shortage of. Apple has released its and, which take great photos, provide long battery life and deliver fast performance, though they lack some of the Galaxy Note 7's cutting-edge features such as an iris scanner and wireless charging. Google recently released its.
And there is, which is the most similar to the Note 7, just without the stylus. Editors' note: The original Samsung Galaxy Note 5 review, first published in August 2015 and updated since, follows. Premium phone, premium price The Galaxy Note 5 is available in gold, silver, white and sapphire black (which looks blue in the light), though not every region carries every color. Prices vary by retailer and country; be sure to check current promotions before you buy. There's no denying that the Note 5 costs a lot, though it varies depending on where you live and where you buy it. That noted, as of October 2015, the 64GB version costs roughly $800 and the 32GB model costs about $700, making the Note 5 more expensive than the $649 64GB and the $749 64GB 6S Plus.
The Note 5 is cheaper than the S6 Edge+, however; you'll pay even more for that curved display. Compared to other large-screen models, like the 5.5-inch or 5.7-inch Moto X Pure, the Note 5 is straight-up pricey. Behold, a Note evolution! (Top, from left to right: Note, Note 2, Note 3; bottom, from left to right: Note 4, Note Edge, Note 5).

Design and build • 5.7-inch display; 2,560x1,440 pixels (518 pixels per inch) • Metal and glass construction • 6 by 3 by 0.3 inches (153 by 76 by 7.6mm) • 6 ounces (171 grams) Like the Galaxy S6, the Note 5 has straight sides and a flat face but also the Edge+'s frontal curves along the back. From what I can tell holding them side by side, the curves are the same. Checking out its profile, these comfortable rear arcs cause the Note 5's top and bottom edges to flare out thicker than its middle. It'll still fill your hand -- this is a large device -- but the overall sensation is still of slimness, especially compared with the relatively bulky Note 4. Samsung adds some new stylus functionality, like being able to jot a memo with the screen turned off.
Josh Miller/CNET Although that AMOLED display still measures 5.7 inches, Samsung has shaved down the Note 5's dimensions, making the handset feel overall sleeker and slimmer than last year's Note 4. That's good news for one-handed phone jockeys, who get the same screen real estate in a more streamlined package. The 2,560x1,440-pixel resolution (515 pixels per inch) holds steady from last year, lending a lot of crisp detail to the screen, possibly even more than we strictly need.
Below the display, the usual two soft keys (recent apps and back) sandwich the physical home button, which also serves as the phone's fingerprint reader and Google Now call-up (press and hold for Google Now, the search giant's voice-command answer to Apple's Siri). You'll find the power/lock button on the right and volume rocker on the left. Along the bottom are the standard Micro-USB charger (alas, ), headset jacks and S Pen holster, with the SIM card tray up top. What makes a Note 5?
Metal, glass and this stylus tucked in down under. Sarah Tew/CNET On the flipside, you'll see the 16-megapixel camera lens, flash and heart rate reader. A unibody device, it has no removable backplate or battery and you won't find an expandable storage slot anywhere. Prepare for your smudgy fingerprints to bloom all over that mirrored surface, and keep a microfiber cloth nearby. One last, infuriating thing I've noticed in all these years of testing: That power/lock button on the right likes to turn itself on in my purse's interior phone pocket, draining battery willy-nilly.
I keep hoping Samsung will work this out, but so far no dice. All-new S Pen stylus • Click-in holster • Slightly recessed button • Way smoother S Note app (with auto-save!) • Dimensions: 4.4 by 0.2 by 0.1 inches (111 by 5.3 by 3.6mm) The Note S Pen stylus, which is made of polycarbonate plastic, changes a little bit every year. This time around, the stylus audibly clicks into place inside the Note 5's chute like the crown of a retractable pen. It's kind of fun, but the fit is so snug, you have to really tease it out.
The plastic pen has long, flat planes to keep it from rolling away on a tabletop. Its single button slightly recesses from the surface to tone down the mispresses, which I've found common in previous S Pen designs. Important tip: That S Pen can only be inserted in the holder pointy end first. It is not meant to holster on the non-business end. If you try that,, as some users report when their S Pens got stuck with the square end wedged, possibly irretrievably, deep inside the phone. Check out all these styluses, from the original Note (far left) to the Note 5.
Josh Miller/CNET The S Pen continues to act as a writing implement, pointer and navigational accomplice. You can use it to pull up a menu dialog box, or hover to pull up photo or video preview.
It also works with those touch-sensitive menu buttons and the physical home button. Dragging and dropping text, and capturing the screen are two other tricks. Samsung claims that its pen writes a lot better this time around, more fluidly, and with decreased latency times. I didn't notice that, even writing with the same pen and ink 'weight' on the Note 5 and Note 4 side by side. I did notice that the 5's S Pen feels a touch lighter, which made for slightly cleaner, easier writing, compared with the Note 4's slightly heavier pen. My handwriting is still barely legible on both.
A glimpse at the redesigned S Note app (left); and drawing with the S Pen. Jessica Dolcourt/CNET The S Note app itself is greatly simplified, with extra features tucked into the More menu. You can also download a ton more tools, like a chart helper and an extension pack that includes advanced tricks like a heartier toolbar and shape recognition, handwriting 'transformation' and the ability to record sketches. In the app itself, you can customize everything from the way you select color to the way you save favorite combinations of pen tips and ink thickness.
As with previous versions, the pen stays sensitive along the corners of the page, and onscreen controls will momentarily disappear so you can continue to write and draw 'below' them. New features Compared with 2014's Galaxy Note 4, the new Note 5 has some additional tricks up its sleeve. Redesigned shortcuts wheel: Called Air Command, this floating icon hangs out on any screen and opens up to reveal a circular menu of most frequently used apps -- say, the S Note app, the browser or your photo gallery. It's always on by default, but you can turn that off in Settings. You can also customize this by adding up to three apps of your choice. The redesigned Air Command wheel looks a whole lot cleaner this time around. Josh Miller/CNET Air Command responds faster these days, which means that if you accidentally click the S Pen button, you can quickly click again to dismiss it without too much interruption.
The floating icon doesn't get much in the way, because it only interacts if you tap or click with the S Pen, not your finger. Instant memo: Called 'screen off memo' in the settings, this feature lets you create an 'action memo' (more like a sticky note) even when the screen is turned off. One caveat: it works only just after pulling out the S Pen, not if the pen has been out for a while.
I like this feature -- it adds to the S Pen's ability to really quickly jot a note. You'll need to dip into the settings to toggle it on. A new mechanism secures the S Pen in place.
Josh Miller/CNET PDF writing: Yep, you can now annotate PDFs by handwriting all over them, just as you can do with a screenshot. Scrolling capture: Instead of taking several screenshots of a long piece of text, the Note 5 will prompt you to capture more of the whole screen. You'll be able to annotate right on the screenshot too, of course. Android and apps • Android 5.1 Lollipop • Easy mode, Private mode • Two power-saving modes • Latest S Health app The Galaxy Note 5 runs, bolstered by Samsung's own TouchWiz layer.
That means the phone will be able to tie in to Google's wide array of services, such as Google Now, turn-by-turn navigation and access to Google Drive files. But it can also tap into Samsung's own software, all of which customizes the display's look and feel -- like those quick-access toggles in the notifications shade and anything that has to do with the S Pen. Microsoft's One Drive cloud storage app is also onboard (more on this below). Samsung launches with Android 5.1, but expect an upgrade to Android Marshmallow 6.0 down the line. Jessica Dolcourt/CNET Alas, while is just around the corner, its due date to these new Samsung phones is anyone's guess.
With the exception of, more substantive software updates are on a. In addition, Samsung's apps include Note mainstays like S Note and S Health, though the company has really pulled back on its preloaded apps. You'll find a cornucopia of optional add-ons tucked away in various spots throughout the phone, like Galaxy Gifts and Galaxy Essentials. A quick skip through the settings menu turns up a whole bushel of extra modes and options, like a simplified home screen (Easy mode) and a vault for photos and files you don't want anyone else to see (Private mode). There are also two levels of battery-saver, several gestures and some themes to freshen up the look and feel. You'll even find a user manual.
Likewise, pull down the notifications shade for quick-access settings, including a flashlight. You can edit to reorder these. From the home page, swipe right to reveal Flipboard, which you can use to read headline news about your pet topics. The camera situation • 16-megapixel camera • 5-megapixel front-facing camera • Up to 4K video resolution • Double-press home button to launch • Live YouTube streaming If you look at the megapixel count alone, not much has changed with the Note 5's camera.
Samsung has adopted a wider aperture lens (f1.9 instead of the Note 4's f2.2), the same one that's used in the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge. Why is this 'good'? A bigger aperture lets in more light, and more light leads to better photos, specifically low-light pictures.
The image-processing capabilities make a huge difference too, of course, but the bottom line is that the overall photo quality should incrementally improve from the Note 4, and is on par with that of the S6 and S6 Edge. What you get with the camera app The phone also gets a few more editing and shooting modes and guides -- little things, mostly, but these are always fun to discover.
As with the Galaxy S6 and many other phones, the Note 5 here has optical image stabilization (OIS), which will help keep shaking hands from blurring shots, and an array of modes and tools. There's auto-HDR right on the screen (this helps keep photos looking true to life) and panorama and selective focus as separate modes within. The native camera menu includes the new YouTube Live Broadcast option.
Josh Miller/CNET Brand-new is a live broadcasting feature that lets you record to YouTube. There's intentionally a 30-second delay between when you start recording and when the footage hits YouTube. This is essentially Samsung and YouTube's take on Twitter's Periscope tool.
(The live broadcast feature is appearing first on the Note 5 and S6 Edge+, and is currently exclusive to those phones -- though how long that will last is anyone's guess.) What else is new? Tap to focus and an exposure control appears that lets you slide to brighten or darken the scene. Take a photo in Pro mode, and you'll have the option to save it as a raw file, one that the phone hasn't automatically processed, say into a JPEG format, first. This option gives photographers much more post-processing control. You can record a collage of four 6-second videos, to which you can add background music and share, share away (the file saves as a 720p MP4). If you're hungry for more modes (like the rear-cam selfie shot), it's easy to download more from the camera app.
